Stuart Woods is in top form…and so is his perennially popular hero, Stone Barrington! When a hedge fund billionaire hires Stone Barrington to talk some sense into his wayward son, it seems like an easy enough job; no one knows the hidden sins and temptations of the ultra-wealthy better than Stone. But as Stone and his erstwhile protégé, Herbie Fisher, probe deeper into the case - and an old one comes back to haunt him - he realizes that even he may have underestimated just how far some people will go to cover up their crimes…and plan new ones.

I'm a book lover, what can I say? I've recently discovered audio books. Oh boy!!
As I've only listened to Stone Barrington novels, I would have to rate this one as one of the better books I've heard.
My favorite part of this book is moving Herbie to Herb and all that is implied with that. I like that Herb is now a successful attorney and am intrigued by the not-so-sutble hint that Herb may be the new Stone Barrington. A spin-off in the future perhaps? I've always liked Herbie, even when he was a, what did Dino call him? I better not use that kind of language! I'm curious as to what Stuart is going to do with Stone now that he is a partner at W&W. I don't know where he can go with that.
Dino. I love Tony's rendition of Dino's voice.
I've read or listened to every Stone Barrington book up until this one, but I might have to reconsider in the future. The story is slow, with no real action. Stone seems like a minor character. Too many scenes feel like the narrative is drawn from an instruction manual or a lecture.
Tony Roberts was the only redeeming point, doing his always great job with Stone, Dino and the others.
On the fence.
I can listen as I drive to and from work, giving me the opportunity to utilize this "down tine."
Barrington. He seems to fall into manure, but keeps coming up smelling like roses.
I drive I listen!
I have read all the Stone Barrington books and I am hooked! This is the bestbecause of the growth of Herbie into a fine lawyer, dresser and good guy!! He inspires even me. The reader read in a way that had me cheering, laughing and gripping the seat!! It shows what happens when a slacker has a role model that helpshim become a better person, lawyer. And excellent dresser.I can already see a spin off of Herbieand his team!! I truly enjoyed this book
A great actor, he does a great job playing all of the parts.
No, it does not seem to carry on like the other Stuart Woods books.
I enjoy listening to the books and appreciate the readers adding so much charisma to it all.
I recommend audible books to others so they can multi-task. Not everyone has the same thoughts as I do.
Love a good book and great wine!
Probably, I love to listen to Tony read Stone Barrington novels.
Stone and Dino
Everything, even when I read a Stone Barrington novel I hear Tony's voice.
The end when dad did what he did.
Used to enjoy the Stone series. The dialog between Stone and Dino was always great, stories good. Now the characters and just boring and talk very "old fashion". Are these last two books written by Stuart Woods? Really, Herbie completely turns his life around becomes a great lawyer? Opps sorry if I gave away the story.
You were always trying to predict the next story line but were always surprised
Yes the constant changing of story lines to different people involved
When Herbby used better judgment than I every expected
Herbie is growing up and that makes Stone Barrington look like a good teacher
Clear Voice easy to listen to
Author, rabid Audible listener.
If I were reading Unnatural Acts, rather than listening to them, I might have been less interested. It is Tony Roberts who brings the characters to life and makes the story highly enjoyable.
I read a number of reviews and disagree. This was an enjoyable Stone Barrington outing with all the things I like about this series. My favorite part was there is little to do with Stone's way-to-perfect son and a lot to do with juggling many plots.
The primary story in this book is about a very wealthy man that needs to control his son. Herbie Fisher takes center stage in this one as a lawyer at Woodman & Weld which leaves Stone and Dino to deal with a number of either subplots throughout the book.
I am hoping the next books will tie together many drawn-out plots and hope there is a bit more substance to them then the thin layer of paint on this book but I still enjoyed it.
